Seattle area teams in bold.

College Basketball in the state of Washington has been great the past two weeks. Washington has been going through the Pac-10 like nobody's buisness, beating a very good UCLA team and USC this past week. They are currently 5-and-1 in the Pac-10. Meanwhile, in the eastern part of WA, Gonzaga has been tearing through conference play. They are undefeated within the WCC, but that could change when they take on St Mary's this Thursday. Washington State has been struggling this season. They dropped to 11-8 after two tough losses to UCLA and USC, both by only two points. Don't look for them to improve, as they play a defense-oriented game that doesn't work very well against the tough offensive teams in the Pac-10. Your weekly planner for Seattle area sports:

Portland Trailblazers: @ LA Clippers on the 26th at 7:30, vs Charlotte on the 28th at 7:00, vs Utah on the 31st at 7:00
